Conservation Biology, 15 credits

About this education

The ongoing loss of biological diversity is a major problem globally. The purpose of conservation biology is to understand the processes and to find ways of reducing this loss. You will be given a broad introduction to the subject, anchored in practical work, with a focus on conservation ecology and conservation genetics. Understanding the processes that control the survival of populations is a key element, and you will gain knowledge in vulnerability analyses and the breeding of threatened animals. The course will be given in English during March–June.
